WeGov Open Data Platform

WeGov Open Data Platform

WeGov is a data integration and display platform that can automatically import data from popular open data APIs (currently AirTable API and Socrata API), join that data together, and then display it all through a single, unified interface with facet-based search and filtration, mapping and more.

This platform is used to power Research.WeGov.NYC, a data driven directory of NYC government agencies that join over a dozen city datasets together to create a uniquely useful interface. Our goal is to follow in the footsteps of OpenCongress.org — to create a “website New York City government should’ve built.” Through Research.WeGov.NYC, users can see a wide range of information about each city agency, including their expense and capital budget items, staff, mayoral key performance indicators (KPIs), their mentions in the city’s charter, rules and administration code, and more.

We invite people to explore using this software to create integrate data platforms for other cities, and for other scenarios.
